Removing henna from hair and going blonde

Postby tressie on Sun Jan 04, 2009 11:31 am

Is this even possible?
My hair is like a #4 or so and I dye with henna to a #33. I've been doing it for 21 years.
I'm ready for a change as I wrote about on another thread: http://talk.hairextensions101.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3560

Will colour remover work with henna or does that only work if you want to remove a chemical hair dye?

Would I have to go light brown first and wait a month or so before adding blonde streaks?

Edit: this is the look I want to achieve.....

Hi Tressie. I just started using henna after viewing posts from Asinnimon. She directed me to this forum on henna:
http://www.hennaforhair.com/forum/index.php?module=phpwsbb&PHPWSBB_MAN_OP=viewforum&PHPWS_MAN_ITEMS=4

I think you will find out how to remove the color on this site. I did a search, but too many threads popped up to post them all for you. I think you should check it out. :D

Hi Julia,

I chickened out on the whole bleaching experiment due to the possible damage and the expensive upkeep. Also I'm pregnant so no colouring right now.

I did try a colour remover which removed some of the henna, like lightened it a couple of shades.

Hope this helps, sorry about the late reply haven't been online much.

:D

I pm'ed you the same message as above, not sure you got it so just in case.....
